10 female Marvel superheroes that deserve the Hollywood treatment
Here are ten Marvel ladies ready to leap from the page to the screen
Elektra - Cast member on Netflix's "Daredevil" leading to her own spin-off.
Just like Gwen Stacy, the character of Elektra is forever linked to the shocking moment of her death. Unlike Gwen, Elektra returned from the grave to become one of Marvel's darkest and most violent characters. Any "Daredevil" series would be incomplete without the Elektra/Murdock arc and the moment of brutality that took Elektra from Matt forever. Non-comic fans who will be experiencing the story of Daredevil for the first time on Netflix deserve to experience the moment when Bullseye stabs Elektra with her own sai. Tthe moment that is vital to Murdock's heroic journey, not to mention being arguably the most iconic moment in the character's history. Involving Elektra (and likely her death) in the first season of Netflix's "Daredevil" is a gimme, but Elektra's resurrection by The Hand and her subsequent adventures would make for a harrowing series in their own right. Marvel can even tie the events of Elektra's rebirth to "Daredevil's" sister show, "Iron Fist." Assuming there will be a Season 2 of Marvel's Netflix titles, Elektra and her dark world of demonic martial arts mayhem would be a perfect direction for something completely different from the pairing. As fans know, for Elektra, death was only a beginning, and her story would be a perfect focus for an edgy, streaming series.
